Tuttz Fairy Cats Series 3

Argonaut Resins has started dropping figures from the Tuttz Fairy Cats Series 3. If you missed out on the first two - sold out - waves, this is your chance. Some resins from the first few waves will be repeated along with a handful of new surprises. Keep an eye out on the store, as Eric will be adding a few every so often throughout the next week or so. There are currently a number of them available for $35.00 each.

Tuttz Cat Fairies Release

Only special people have the ability to see Fairies - can you see them?!

If you - like me - were snoozing over Christmas, you likely missed the  the all new 2 inch tall Tuttz Cat Fairies release from Argonaut Resins on Christmas Eve. This series is very limited and will also come with a few chase colors. These new cats are the same size as the previously released Micro 3D printed resins (straight from Eric Nocella Diaz's 3D home printer). Pick the Tuttz Cat Fairies up for $12.00 each.

DragonFly 2.0 Release – TODAY

The 3-inch tall DragonFly 2.0 hand cast resin figurines - from Argonaut Resins - will be releasing today (Monday, October 23rd 2017) at 9PM ET in the Argonaut Resins online store. The edition size for wave one of the new bugs will be 25 pieces and that's including the unpainted blank versions. This new figure was 3D modeled on the computer by artist Eric Nocella Diaz and 3D printed with his very own printer before being cast and painted in metallic colors. Keep a eye on the release as there may be a few surprise Chase DragonFly's to pop up during the release that are not shown in the above image.

Dragonfly 2.0 Prototype

Eric Nocella Diaz of Argonaut Resins has shared the 3-inch tall 3D printed prototype - done in a translucent clearish resin - for his all new Dragonfly 2.0 project. The wings do not come off and are not swappable like the earlier sold out seated Dragonfly 1.0 version. It's 3D modeled by Eric and printed and is headed to production for limited run resin cast editions. Colorways and pricing will be announced soon.
